One of the noblest and least understood attributes of the Byzantine EMpire was a pervasive concern for what is now called philanthropy. It was part of an enoumously complex society with orphanges, homes for the aged, hospitals, refuges for displaced persons, poorhouses, etc. Philanthropy was a powerful force in relieving immediate social illas and in pursuing specific humanitarian goals.
